Did someone say cashmere?

Mama Blue Socks

I am in love with my new socks! The color, the pattern, the yarn, the feel...could it really be that 10% cashmere in the Mama Blue Troika Sock yarn? Who knows...but I should do love these!

I so need me some Troika sock - I can't wait til next Friday - I'm not mentioning it on my blog though, because I am selfish:) Your socks are fabulous!

Beautiful! If they feel half as nice as they look, those are some comfy socks. :-)

Soooo pretty. I've gotta ask, though....don't you find the cashmere hard to care for in a sock? I've finally gotten where I only knit in superwash for socks for anybody other than a fellow knitter because trying to rescue the socks before they get to the washer and (God forbid) *gasp* the dryer is just a royal pain in the butt.

Stacey said...

Love the socks! I have those in my queue and I think I finally have the perfect yarn for them. Now if I can just get through some must knit items so I can get around to them...

Oh, and I got in to Woolgirl's sock club for 2009!!!! I'm SO excited!!!!

The color is quite pleasing to the eye, and who wouldn't love to wear cashmere.

GORGEOUS! And your first lacy socks, no? Very pretty pattern. Maybe the lacy holes would make the socks more wearable here in Florida ;0)
